In April my in laws came for a visit and I started planning some nice meals that would feed more than my usual 4 people. My mother in law has Celiac Sprue which means she cannot have any foods with gluten in it. For those of you who have ever tried to eat a gluten free diet, you will understand that this dietary restriction puts a bit of a crimp in the grocery shopping and menu planning. I wanted to grill out some chicken breasts but looked forever for a gluten free marinade to try. I finally found one but it was difficult! Then, the week after they left I received a wonderful box of gluten free sauces from San-J! Oh, but just a few days too late for my company! However, I have had a great time trying out these gluten free sauces over the past month and now that I know about San-J gluten free sauces I am going to be placing an order the next time my in-laws visit!
San-J began selling Tamari sauce in the US in 1978 and quickly moved into other Asian sauces, marinades, salad dressings and a fewother products. They offer a variety of gluten free and organic products that would be a wonderful addition to any Asian inspired meal. What I really love about the San-J website is that all of the nutrition information and certifications are available for each product right there on the website.
San-J Gluten Free Asian BBQ
San-J offers so many gluten free products that I could not list them all here! I will tell you that I received original Tamari sauce as well as the following Asian sauces to try:
Thai Peanut Sauce
Sweet & Tangy Sauce
Asian BBQ Sauce
The San-J gluten free Tamari sauce is made with 100% soybeans and no wheat. All of their gluten free sauces are certified gluten free by the Gluten-Free Certification Organization. They participate in The Non-GMO Project, too, so several of their sauces are GMO free. If you would like to find these sauces locally, check out the Where to Buy section of their website.
So, what did I do with the sauces I received to try? The Asian BBQ sauce went towards making pulled pork in my crockpot. I just put in a pork roast (heritage free roaming pork from my local farmer!) and about a cup or so of the Asian BBQ sauce. Then cover and put on low for 12 hours. The meat pulled apart beautifully and I added the remaining sauce to the pulled meat right before serving on Kaiser rolls. The sauce had a tangy flavor with no artificial smoke added like some BBQ sauces. I really dislike that fake smoke flavor! This was BBQ flavor with a bit of an Asian flare!
I used the Thai Peanut Sauce in a vegetarian stirfry. Just tons of veggies and honey roasted peanuts with the sauce and brown rice. A delicious meatless meal! The sauce had a wonderful peanut flavor with a bit of zing to it. I really loved it.
I have also tried the original Tamari sauce (similar to regular soy sauce but a bit stronger flavor) and the Teriyaki sauce (similar to other Teriyaki sauces I have tried). I have been very happy with all of the gluten free sauces I have tried from San-J and am happy to have a source of ready made flavor the next time I am entertaining company that is gluten intolerant!
